You know you ski a lot (or just wax a lot) when your scraper becomes dull. The folks at Swix ski a lot and decided it was time that somebody made a sharpener for wax scrapers. If your wax scraper has rounded edges, the Swix Plexisharpener is the perfect tool to revive it. Slide any acrylic scraper over the file and it becomes square, meaning less passes to scrape off your hot wax. Renew your tools today.
Questions & Reviews
The only drawback to this design is that the scraper might develop somewhat of a concavity over time, as the tendency is to sharpen more of the middle of the scraper edge's length.
Another approach is to use a sander on your scraper edge, but that of course entails placing your scraper in a vise then getting out your sander (assuming you already have a sander). For a quick refresh though of the scraper edge, this Swix tool is perfect.
And for anyone wondering whether scraper sharpening is the ultimate in gear obsession, not really: the time spent refreshing a scraper edge is far less than the extra time spent scraping off wax with a dull scraper.
